But if people feel unwelcomed just because their blog is not added to
p.g.o as soon as they asked, they are asking too much IMO.  It's been
customary in GNOME that people join the project, do more and more, and
other hackers recognize their effort by asking them to get commit access
etc.  Same thing about p.g.o.

Moreover, Planet GNOME is one of our most important channels of
communication to the outside world.  Imagine what happens if we let
anyone ever contributing a single patch to GNOME on it...  Imagine 2000
feeds.  It just loses all its importance.
